Holiday tabletop idea: Brown and mauve

By: Eryn Chesney
Nothing suits a winter dinner party at dusk like a rustic aesthetic. Wood tones, moody mauves and rich greys create a sense of warmth in the glow of candlelight. The mix of vintage tableware and textured table linens in this relaxed setting will beckon hungry guests to the table for a comforting buffet-style feast.

A monochromatic scheme like this one is easy on the eyes. Stick to similar colours and bring in variation through texture. brown-mauve-tabletop1.jpg
Mood lighting

Wintry white berries surround a lightly used holiday candle. Line the table with these displays for the perfect mood lighting. brown-mauve-tabletop2.jpg Gift toppers
Handmade gift toppers suit the bucolic theme. Make them by stitching simple holiday patterns in remnants of burlap stuffed with cotton. brown-mauve-tabletop3.jpg
Moody atmosphere

A weathered ship-style lantern, vintage photograph and casual floral arrangement work together to create a moody atmosphere here. brown-mauve-tabletop4.jpg
Place setting
With layers of texture and dramatic colour, each place setting is like a gift in itself, especially when tied with a velvet ribbon – just unwrap and enjoy! For an added rustic touch, miix your old and new dishware for a truly relaxed feel.
